I think it would've been interesting had Monsha ended up with the
Gundam...imagine, a ltcherous Gundam pilot being the star of the series!
Plus, they're probably be some amusing banter between him and Gato...

alright, here's a brand-new state of the art fighter, nevermind that
we've only given you the basics of pilot taining so far.. oh and what's
that? the enemy's leading ace is out there and he wants to kill You?
well, have fun :)

 A cooler,
it's all about the cool ones getting all the glory isn't it?

more competent pilot would have been able to handle the situation better
than Kou.

granted, but considering Kou's lack of expireince he's lucky to have

of course Gato was probalby never asked to chase-down the Federation's

all other things being equal the probably were (remember Nina's
evaluation of the test-data the fist time Kou took the Gundam out?) but
things weren't equal were they? Kou had the deck stacked against him
from day one and things didn't get any better after that so he really
dosn't need to be cumped-on any more for things that were out of his
control alright?

who is just having one too many High School flash-backs reading this
